A Masterly Patio Plan The idealization of bungalow designing must include a patio, or ample open court. You know (or can learn from Vol. 5 of the famous Cypress Pocket Library) that technically a "bungalow" must be all on one floor; a two-story "bungalow" is a "cottage," correctly speaking. Only a true bungalow can avert stair-climbing. Sufficient room often, then, requires more ground area-and the patio solves the problem. Think of waking in a chamber whose opposite windows all look upon foliage and fountains. CYPRESS, "the wood eternal," is the pre-eminent bungalow wood because "Cypress lasts practically forever"-DEFIES ROT INFLU ENCES which destroy most other woods- does not warp, shrink, or swell like most wood takes paint and stain perfectly but does not need either. (See U. S. Gov't Rept.-reprinted verbatim in "Vol. I," Cypress Pocket Library.) The Brand-New Cypress Bungalow Book Vol. 41 of the Cypress Pocket Library (entirely new) contains SKETCHES, DETAILED WORK 1NG DRAWINGS (on sheet 24 x 36 inches) and FULL SPECIFICATIONS for erecting the beautiful and ample pati, bungalow pictured above.
